We went here with some friends. It was my first visit and had great expectations. We arrived and were shown to our table and presented with the menu. Our food arrived later and we were. Keen to eat our Sunday lunch but unfortunately the food was just warm and not piping hot as I would have expected. Am so disappointed... More

Had our work Christmas lunch here this week - a group of 17 on two tables. I had three courses and each one was absolutely delicious. I had a prawn and smoked salmon starter which was well-presented and the flavours were lovely. Main course was pheasant which was a good size serving perfectly seasoned. I changed my mind for dessert... More

I have been an occasional visitor to The Lime Tree over the last 18 years. It is the sort of place to celebrate special occasions. However every time I go I end up wondering why it took so long to return! Although on the expensive side the service, food and presentation are always immaculate. The food is wonderfully seasoned, vegetables... More

Took group of 14 there and were treated to friendly service, good food and a great atmosphere. Fun place to go with a group & had quiet meal for 2 on another night that was also good. Limited range of non-meat dishes but couple of fish selections both excellent.

A great place to spend a Sunday . The food is exceptional and the staff amazing. Great atmosphere. The puddings are big so next time no starter for me. Although the poached pear as a starter was the best.

I went here last month as part of a large group for a celebratory meal. The atmosphere and decoration in the restaurant were very pleasant. The rest of the table drank wine but I only drank tap water. I had soup for starter, which was thick and tasty and very filling (the best part of the meal). However, the rest... More

Went out with family to celebrate my birthday. Perfect atmosphere, excellent service a very enjoyable evening. We stuck to the early doors menu and were not dissapointed, perfect presentation and full of flavour. The evening worked out a bargain for the quality.

I came here for lunch for my mum's 70th birthday. The service & food were amazing. The waiters were both polite & informative. They even did a beautiful dessert for mums birthday without me having to ask. It's little touches like this that make a restaurant stand out.
